1 PicADay Project: Day 360

Wow, I can’t believe that I only have 5 more days on this project!!!  It’s gone by so quickly!

Here’s a photo of some peppers that I was cutting for my husband’s omelette the other night.  They were so beautiful and colorful that I couldn’t resist taking some shots of them.  I think it took me about 40 minutes to actually get them cut up.  I guess my husband will cut them up himself next time. 🙂

1 PicADay Project: Day 358

According to the U.S. Treasury Fact Sheet on Coins and Currency the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on U.S. coins because of increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War. Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase received many appeals from devout people, throughout our country, urging that the United States recognize the Deity of God on it’s coins. The first letter dated November 13, 1861 was written to Secretary Chase by Rev. M. R. Watkinson, a minister from Rileyville, PA.  It read:

Dear Sir: You are about to submit your annual report to the Congress respecting the affairs of the national finances.
One fact touching our currency has hitherto been seriously overlooked. I mean the recognition of the Almighty God in some form on our coins.
You are probably a Christian. What if our Republic were not shattered beyond reconstruction? Would not the antiquaries of succeeding centuries rightly reason from our past that we were a heathen nation? What I propose is that instead of the goddess of liberty we shall have next inside the 13 stars a ring inscribed with the words PERPETUAL UNION; within the ring the all seeing eye, crowned with a halo; beneath this eye the American flag, bearing in its field stars equal to the number of the States united; in the folds of the bars the words GOD, LIBERTY, LAW.
This would make a beautiful coin, to which no possible citizen could object. This would relieve us from the ignominy of heathenism. This would place us openly under the Divine protection we have personally claimed. From my hearth I have felt our national shame in disowning God as not the least of our present national disasters.
To you first I address a subject that must be agitated.

What if Rev. M.R. Watkins could see our country now?  God have mercy on us!

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

I have really gotten my $4.99 worth out of the flowers on my desk in the form of photos.  Here’s another view of them from a low perspective.  I love my red vase by the way!

A Dying Breed ?

This is my very old ‘boom box’ (remember those?) that I’ve had for years.  It’s sits on my desk after having been passed around to other co-workers for a while.  It still works even with a broken antenna and a ‘dirty sounding’ knob and sometimes, though rare, I still turn it on and listen.  Most of the time I listen to my iPod on my iPhone or Pandora Radio.  I used to have Satellite Radio, but I figured out I didn’t want to keep paying for that when I had all these other choices.  SO…..What with Pandora, MP3 files, iTunes, iPods, Satellite Radio, PodCasts etc., etc., etc.  I wonder what the future is for our good ole’ terrestrial radio in 5 to 10 years?
